Video interview: What's new in Dishonored's The Brigmore Witches DLC?

By Tom Ivan on Tuesday 6th Aug 2013 at 11:40 AM UTC

Below you'll find a video interview for upcoming Dishonored DLC pack The Brigmore Witches.

A follow-up to the last story-focused Dishonored DLC, The Knife of Dunwall, the campaign add-on pack lets players conclude the story of Daud, the assassin who killed the Empress at the beginning of the main game.

The video below features plenty of gameplay footage and insight from Dishonored co-creative director Raphael Colantonio, who says the DLC enabled Arkane Studios to experiment with new things like giving the hero a voice.

He also talks about new powers introduced in the DLC such as 'Pull', which lets players draw enemies and objects towards them, and the reworked Blink ability.

"The Blink of Daud is definitely more than a slight tweak," Colantonio says. "We've added this pause in time as you jump and you're not pushing forward. It allows you to change your direction in the air, which was something we wanted to try for Dishonored but we did not quite have time."

The Brigmore Witches is set for release on August 13, priced at 800 MS Points on Xbox 360 and £7.99/€9.99/$9.99/AU$14.45 on PS3 and PC.

Power, weapon and item upgrades, plus Chaos level from The Knife of Dunwall will carry over via a compatible save file option.
